This is a map of the world generated by estimated carbon damage due to emissions. It’s an amazing site, though it could be dangerous to your afternoon. Vas doucement.

So the NYT has gotten into the act – man, so many words seem loaded in this day and age – with their Green, Inc blog. I’m not going to link to it, for a variety of reasons not the least of which is the entry this morning was about hybrid… yachts. No, really. Making Brazillianaires feel better about themselves. I’ve heard of a hybrid yacht before, in fact they’ve been around for a while. They’re called sailboats.

The title of the post is a nod to ‘Gabo’, of course. I found one of his books in my office this morning while looking for something else of supposedly great importance. It was all I could do not to lock the door and dive in, obviously a sign questionable virtue and character on my part. Take from that what you might, but coming across that book kind of put things in perspective for me.
